These cream cheese filled zucchini muffins are amazing! Delicious muffins with a creamy cream cheese center! They are full of flavor and perfect with a cup of coffee!
My husband has some funny notions about life. One is in refrence to zucchini. He says it’s something that people grow in their garden because they think they’re supposed to, that no one really likes it. (He doesn’t like it so of course no one does!)
I tend to disagree with him… he’s a little crazy after all… and I love zucchini, cooking with it, baking with it… I think it is totally worth growing!
However, it does tend to come in spurts and all of a sudden you have a bunch of zucchini… sometimes you have a pile on your counter the day before you go on vacation and have to leave them on your neighbor’s doorstep with a note… ahem… not that I’ve ever done that.
Since what goes around comes around though, I was gifted just a few days ago with a rather large yellow zucchini and decided that it should be made into something delicious… something like these muffins.
They are super, nice an moist, just a little sweet and with a tasty cream cheese surprise hiding inside!
Here’s what you’ll need for these cream cheese filled zucchini muffins-
2-Cups Shredded Zucchini
2 1/2- Cups Flour
1/3- Cup Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2- tsp Salt
1- tsp Baking Soda
1- tsp Cinnamon
1/2- Cup Greek Yogurt
For the filling-
4 oz. Cream Cheese softened
2- Tbsp Honey
First get your oven preheating to 35o and line a muffin pan with muffin wrappers or grease and flour.
In a large mixing bowl combine your zucchini, eggs, oil, Greek yogurt, and honey stir until well mixed. Gradually stir in your flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
In a separate smaller bowl mix together your cream cheese and honey until smooth.
Now fill your muffin pans about 1/3 of the way with the zucchini batter mix. Scoop a spoonful the cream cheese mixture into the center of each and then top with more batter.
Pop them into the oven for about 2o minutes, until the top is set and they’re just starting to brown.
Once they’re done let them cool before eating… at least a little they’re pretty delicious warm!
